Where can you see Pilobolus for only $10? At the 5th Annual Emerson SPRING TO DANCE FESTIVAL 2012! The world-renowned shape-shifters are only one of 30 dance companies adorning this Memorial Day Weekend phenomenon three nights of the best of the Midwest and beyond, a different program every night, still only $10 a night. Last year, the Friday and Saturday performances sold out. This year promises to be even more popular, with returning favorites like Buckets and Tap Shoes and Nashville Ballet, and companies never before seen here like Chicago Dance Crash and Q Dance from Canada . Each evening is three shows in one, with performances in the Touhill's Terrace Lobby, the intimate Lee Theater (free passes for Lee seating are given out at the Touhill box office the night of the show), and the Anheuser-Busch Performance Hall. As Dance Magazine says about the festival, "Dance St. Louis has just the ticket." Don't miss out on yours!

Single tickets on sale now.
NOTE: NEW THIS YEAR free Lee Theater pass: Performances in the Lee Theater are, as always, included in the $10 ticket, but seating will be available only for ticket holders who have a free Lee Theater pass. Free passes will be distributed beginning at 4:40 p.m. the night of the show at the Touhill ticket office. And once they’re gone, they’re gone. This change was designed to free you from standing in line outside the Lee Theater waiting for a seat to open. Instead, if you are not able to secure a pass, you can go right to the Terrace Lobby to enjoy interactive performances by local dance troupes. Lobby performances run continuously from 5:30 to 7 pm
